found a mod to bring armor & Mg-36 into the game - it's extremely overpowered though so I haven't used the armor for anything but screenshots
I've kept the mg just in case though - that thing is good for crowd control
I am getting through Fallout: New Vegas. I only have 15 hours logged so far. ATM I am trying to figure out how to go about killing or tricking the Van Graff's so I could be able to steal and enjoy all of their fine weaponry? (which is all I really want to do) I don't want to hurt my reputation with the NCR because I have aligned myself with them in this game.
Anyways here is my pumpkin carving for this year..... Sackboy Happy Halloween MP.net
Afaik LucasArts switched very early from classic adventures (Fate of Atlantis, Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle) to action-adventures (Emperor's Tomb, Infernal Machine). Point-and-Click changed to some sort of Tomb Raider, and looking at LucasArts newest games, they don't seem to realize a new old school adventure could be very successful. Instead, they're jumping on the console train. You can't tell me it's fun to play The Force Unleashed without a gamepad!
I wouldn't say the adventure genre is dead (LucasArts is dead, no question about that!), but it lacks some serious input in form of new ideas. German developers are currently doing good work on that. Stay with the graphics, sound and controls of Lost Horizon and you're on the safe side. However, get a new story going - how about the Crusades? You can't always use the old Indy Jones approach and include the Nazis hunting for obscure objects crucial for their plans of world domination. Perhaps an adventure based on Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose or Pat Reid's Colditz Castle would be cool.
Looking at my book shelf, I say someone should make an adventure about the Cold War period. Spies, secret equipment, covering a lot of places all over the world. You get it. There are countless ideas, and I'd happily buy an outstanding 24h-adventure than just another Call of Duty remake.
Btw, there is Tales of Monkey Island in the making and scheduled for release on November 9 (at least in Germany), but it looks pretty strange.. like Jump 'N Run.
So The Warhammer Dawn of War II Gold Edition(vanilla game and the expansion) are on sale on Steam for €14,99. Do you guys think it's worth it? I've played the demo for a bit and i liked it, but wasn't overly sucked into the game. Does it get better?
